Hello World,

Wishing you all a fabulous holiday season and may we all get a chance to spread more love and cheer as well as some moments to be thankful for all the blessing we have received this year!

My first make for this month and for my 100 me-made outfit challenge is a polka dot blouse that I made out of  fabric I was gifted by a friend for my Birthday.

Sewing for others

Hello Sewcialists,

Did you’ll watch the movie, Dressmaker? I did. Thrice already and I love it. After watching it, I thought I should give more thought about sewing for others and today I am sharing a few projects that I have been doing for the past couple of weeks for others. It’s a challenge to sew as per their individual preferences, and me being a sewing introvert, thought it’s a good challenge. I honestly cannot say I enjoy 100% but it’s an amazing learning curve. So here are my favorites from the recent past…
